The Complete Guide to Understanding Water Damage in Kimberly
Thorough Water Removal From Start to Finish for Kimberley Residents
A personal property disaster can be a challenging situation that requires expert advice and remediation. Cleaning up a severe water spill often requires more than just household goods. Standing water, in particular, can seep into crawlspaces or saturate your subfloor mat. As with most water issues, a fast restoration process is essential to preventing permanent damages to your property or possessions.
We can bring industrial equipment for water removal in Kimberley properties in as little as four hours of notification of loss. Our emergency line is manned 24 hours a day and provides our community with an immediate contact point for those looking to arrange service. Depending on the severity of your property damages, we can tailor our approach to your needs by sending specialist technicians directly to your home.
A severe case of water damage can occur when standing water is above two inches. SERVPRO uses fully-submersible gas-powered pumps to vacuum water into a nearby sewer point. The advantage of using equipment like this is that the amount of water that can be removed is limitless. Although effective at quickly clearing away standing water or water pools, using a pump is only the initial phase of your restoration process.
Once all standing water is removed, the real work begins. SERVPRO technicians have training in a wide variety of different restoration processes including mold assessment and remediation. Residual moisture can often promote mold growth in the home so ensuring the property is thoroughly dry is essential. However, this undertaking is made harder by fabrics and furnishings in the home, like carpets, which can be up to 50% weaker when wet.
Mitigating loss is a central tenet of a SERVPRO service. In private properties, we favor portable water extractors which are kind to carpets and other fabrics. Usually, the extraction process is quickly followed up with the strategic placing of rapid air movers and dehumidifiers. Rapid air movers lift residual moisture into the air through evaporation; dehumidifiers then pull the evaporated moisture out of the air, reducing the risk of mold or mildew, which thrives in moist, humid environments.
